In a regulatory filing, Bank of Baroda informed of a revision in the Marginal Cost of Funds Based Lending Rate (MCLR) under the Regulatory 30 of SEBI (LODR) regulations, 2015.

MCLR Tenors Existing MCLR (%) MCLR w.e.f. 07th March 2019 (%)

One Month 8.40 8.30
Three Month 8.50 8.40
Six Month 8.70 8.60
One Year 8.75 8.65

The MCLR for one-year tenor was also reduced to 8.65 percent from 8.75 percent. A majority of the retail loans including home loans are benchmarked against the one-year MCLR.

This rate cut is reflective the Reserve Bank of India's cut in repo rate by 25 basis points to 6.25 percent. The application of the change has been a month after the RBI policy meet.

Banks have been delaying passing on the RBI rate cuts to end-borrowers, citing higher credit cost due to the massive NPA piles.
